Local elections in consensus of all parties, says Deuba

NEPALGUNJ: Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that the local elections would be held in the consensus of all parties.

Speaking at a press meet organised by Nepal Press Union, Banke, here today, he said elections should be accepted by all parties as a common condition.
